Relationships Matter, Now More Than Ever
What an unsettling time we are learning to navigate! During this time, the power of human connection will be evident, and needed now more than ever. We talk frequently about the importance of relationships, knowing that these relationships nurture and build us up. Relationships matter! It will be a challenge to maintain our relationships as we move to technology-based platforms; however, we know the needs will be the same. We can support our children and families by listening and validating concerns, being a partner in talking through challenges, connecting families to resources, and talking about behaviors their child may be exhibiting during this time. Your connection will make a difference!
All of this may feel overwhelming! Please remember to practice good self-care during this time. In order to be able to do our best for others, we must do the best in taking care of ourselves. Give yourself permission to disconnect and refuel each day.
